“It (Taj Mahal) is very important for us, especially from a tourism perspective,” the chief minister said.The Yogi government claims that various development and  tourism projects  have been sanctioned in UP.

 

Adityanath will visit the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort in Agra on October 26 and review the ongoing tourism and development projects, some of which are being run with the help of the World bank.

 

Several Critics had attacked the state government over the omission of the Taj Mahal from brochure and were of opinion that the BJPwas working on its Hindutva agenda.

 The Taj Mahal was constructed with white marble and figures among the Seven Wonders of the World. It was built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz in 1631.

The Taj Mahal and Agra account for the maximum number of inbound tourists, who contribute to the local and the state economy immensely. A total of over 10 million tourists visited Agra in 2016, followed by 5.9 million and 4.9 million in Varanasi and Lucknow, respectively.
